I'm using Visual Studio.NET 2003, and DirectX 8.0 SDK came shipped with it. I assume you can compile your DX8 applications right away.

As for DirectX 9.0, the installer update Visual Studio's setting immediatly. I didn't need to add the lib/header paths inside the settings myself.

Just try to see if it works.
